Heavy duty storage building
The construction site was geographically remote and the main contractor envisaged difficulties procuring skilled labour to fix the manually intensive loose bar reinforcement. We were asked to assist with the objective of reducing the reliance on skilled labour.
After reviewing the drawings we re-detailed the heavily loaded floor slab using carpet reinforcement. Quickly and easily laid by general labour - as opposed to specialist steel fixers - the job was completed ahead of programme.
- Up to 90% fixing cost saving against traditional rebar arrangement.
- Elimination of the need for specialist skills.
